is to coordinate response between state and local governments and his focus, his direction to us really comes down it 3 things. he asks us to always plan for the worst case, the maximum of the maximums and it's go to see the department of defense is incorporating this within the catastrophe policy that was spoken about a little earlier. no. 2, he asked us to sppbld and are able to stabilize an incident within 72 hours. his mantra is think big, go big, go fast but not fast. 3, he asks us to do this within a whole community approach, not only it make sure we utilize the whole community in the response because there's much more responders past the federal-state responders. there's the public being responders and there's many others, private industry need to be in that so we try to integrate that into a whole community concept. and also to make sure when we respond we respond to take into account the whole community. not everybody looks like me and you but we need to be able to take into account and service our elderly, infants and others that may need special assistance. with that, the purpose of th

communities project, so this is a valencia and streetscape, local streets and roads, a pavable rehabilitation project. new features, the bicycle and pedestrian improvements pot have previously projects could only be funded through larger streetescape projects or a bicycle project could be funded if it was on the bicycle network. those restrictions have been lifted. we can fund virtually any pedestrian project including education and outreach, a flexible category. and the school portion. we decided to call that out and focus in on a small amount of funds to look at infrastructure projects. the schedule we are working with right now, the funding framework, which we just looked at, the priority schedule, released today, will release projects after the board action next week. initial application also be due in october. we are working on getting a little of a previous release out a week early, making sure the application is up and online and projects will begin looking at it and understand what we are looking for. we are doing a two-part call for projects, so the first initial round will be due fo
and far and using locally sourced ingredients. as we observe national food day i wanted to recognize the restaurant that has significant impact on our business community and neighborhood and also uses the power of food to reach diverse communities and those in need. in addition to the positive impact on its surrounding neighborhood they also participate in the episcopal community services conquering homelessness through employment and food services or commonly known as the chef's program which trains homeless adults in the operations of the culinary industry. it is incredibly important that we as a community give back to others, and jeff and allison promote a culture of giving through their restaurants. i would like -- and you empowered employees and a wonderful thing so without any additional delay i will like to restaurant them with the 2012 appreciate honor for district five. >> thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you. we're very honored. my husband laurence hoped to be here as well and jeff and i business partner and we are lucky to be included in this month's honorium a
on infrastructure projects. and then there was also -- this came up, discuss, you know, shop local, give support for local business initiatives were discussed. and the mayor wants to lead a campaign targeting city employees to redirect 10% of their spending to local businesses. getting city departments to purchase local. create a shop local first initiative. and for each business that registers with the city that the city sends business with, put a window decal on, just getting people to shop, eat, drink and spend their money locally. and i want to s. os commissioner dwight and commissioner riley if they have any observations on that meeting that we had with the mayor. >> i think it was a good meeting. i thought there was -- obviously it was a little chaotic. so, i think scott's going to make some [speaker not understood] to make it a little more organized going in there. so, that's good. but no, i think it's fantastic that the mayor is open to meeting in that forum. >> i think you covered most of the items that were discussed. and i think it's a good idea to have some face time with the mayor e
systems and our property. i just feel like the local -- i feel like the shelter monitoring committee is being ignored. jane kim you are doing some work with that and i would appreciate if would you sends one of your legislative aide. >> excuse me, circumstance sir, we have a rule in the board that permits speakers from targeting certain supervisors. >> maybe you should send your legislative aides. maybe jane kim shouldn't be the only one trying to make the shelter systems better. i feel like the sf hot team is really being ignored in this equation. they will put someone off the streets and put them in a house and put their lives together. they have already cut them once and i would like at least people to start bringing them into the equation. the other thing that i am having a problem with. it just seems that everybody is disconnected from each other. like the san francisco male health association, the sro task force, the local homeless coordinating board and the shelter monitors are not really coming together to deal with this problem. >> thank you very much. i'm sorry, i reali
for local clean energy and local clean alliance and without that group we also wouldn't be here and i want to put out the kudos to all those folks. they did incredible work. as to next steps i think the measure that was passed at the board of supervisors on the 18th was exactly the right way to pass it, and i am glad the amendments that got passed got passed and the ones that didn't, didn't and i think it's important to recognize the concerns that the mayor is raising are valid concerns and want to make sure folks know that the advocates share the concerns and as i said in the finance and budget committee and if we roll it out and it's not popular and people get freaked out for the price or didn't know what they were going to spend that is not good for clean energy. it's bad for it. it would turn people away from it, so you have the commitment of the advocates that we will stay on the case. we want to work monthly with the staff and local power to get this under way in the right way, i would always mention as far as outreach goes advocates now think the key is the opt out rate and the
to redistribute those to rate payers. as of now transit and other local agencis are not part of the rate payer package that would receive money back. there is discussion about introducing legislation that would return some of that back to the rate payers. next is the project initiation document. there were two bills that were passed dealing with project initiation, one would not pass, ab1780, introduced by the self help county. this would have shifted funding and review and approval to the local agencies -- sorry, from the local agencies to the state highway account that did not pass. as a result, andb1477 was introduced and compromised at was at the end of session. the result from the locally funded developments and oversight will not be charged indirect costs. the reimbursement for both oversight and development. this assumes the highway account funding for state and joint-sponsored projects. lastly, just wanted to give you some quick look aheads for next year. we are looking at proposition 1b. that proposition coming to an end, which ultimately means transportation funding. brian kelly, sec
